Remember "Saturday Night Live"? No, it didn't go off the air in 1978!

OMG, Pete Sampras would be even worse than Roddick :eek: Jesus, he couldn't even sustain a conversation in the commentary booth :eek:
Yes, agreed.

Look, Andy wouldn't be awful. He'd flub his lines and probably suck, but at least he wouldn't be wooden like Pete, or horribly inept like Anna. Or horrendous and scary like Robert De Niro during his appearance last season.

If Chris Evert got to host, any of the above can.

I enjoy how Jimmy and Horatio crack each other up whenever they share the stage. Last season was crap so at least I could always look forward to that.

Sadly, SNL gatherings seem to have given way to "Sex and the City" gatherings. Cynthia Nixon, man! Cynthia Nixon!!

Ice Princess got to host SNL :eek: In its glory days?! :eek:

I think Andy would be so juiced up at being on SNL and completing his tour of New York as its new king that . . . let's just say, it would be bad. Athletes don't usually have good acting skills. Plus, I can't imagine what horrors they would have to come up with for sketches to fill and hour and a half :eek: It'd be even worse if it was Anna since they've parodied her so much lately :eek:

From what I can tell thanks to Comedy Central (and what don't we learn from Comedy Central, I ask), the eighties were decidedly not SNL's finest hour... :eek:

The sketches are horrid for everyone. And since they know he'll be green, they'll juice up the troupe's parts and make him play variations of Andy Roddick.

Yeah, but Chrissie hosted in like...when did she retire? 1989? Around then. They did a sketch with a hyper-competitive Martina Navratilova following her around the world, trying to turn everything into a battle, while Chris would whine, "Martinaaaa...I'm retired nooooow." It's awful. Watch for it.

These were the Victoria Jackson years. 'Nuff said.

No, decidedly not. I thought you meant she got a job in the late 70's. *whew*

I'm trying to imagine how much worse it will be as compared to Johnny Mosley. Seriously, that was painful to see.

I'm going to point out while I still can that Maja Matevzic has more than DOUBLE the votes of anyone else :D

They would ALWAYS roll out that clip in their insepid sport clip theme shows that they loved to show the week of the Super Bowl.

And Victoria Jackson sucked hard.
